Higaki Foundation

© JEC/Carol-Anne Conway

The foundation for the Higaki is a horizontal foundation stitched in flat silk. I really like this shade of brown. All the colours are really growing on me.

Each page is stitch separately and the foundation is horizontal to the page being stitched not the fabric. When all the foundation is in place, temporary holding is used to stop it from shifting.

The higaki design is traced onto tissue paper with is tacked over the foundation. Later the design will be stitched through the tissue paper.

Happy Stitching
